Employers are the backbone of our program – you receive job-ready youth, and our program pays their salary.
Each youth is paired with a job coach from day one, who supports both youth and employers to ensure that the program is an excellent experience for everyone. Prior to youth being matched with an employer they receive critical soft skills, financial literacy, and job readiness training.
Interested in being an STL Youth Jobs employer?
Preference is given to companies who match a youth’s area of interest, operate in high-growth industries, are in proximity to our target neighborhoods, who have the infrastructure to create an excellent experience for STL youth, or who would consider hiring youth once the summer term is complete.
